About Enzo Scalzo

My partner and I own this apartment. We have been running the holiday rental now for over three years. We recently moved to Emilia Romagna, and I can recommend this area of Italy also!

We have an Italian restaurant in London, da Scalzo, on Elizabeth Street, Belgravia,which I highly recommend!

That's enough plugging I think.

I hope you enjoy the apartment as much we do.

Just had to share our experience of the cottage as my wife and I had such a lovely time at Rabbini. We knew the property well, having stayed with our family in the Cottage in summer of 2012. We loved the area and vowed to return. Cottage 2 is delightful. Pictures can only reveal so much, but I will add that the accommodation and all facilities are superb and well thought out. Everything is provided, with a stylish flair for detail. As a destination, you could not be better located, for walks, cycling and drives to beautiful villages and towns with such historic sites, markets and cultural attractions. I thoroughly recommend either of these superb properties, whilst the owners are a pleasure to deal with also, being helpful and full of useful information to make your stay a memorable one.
